Just as she’s done so often throughout her illustrious career, Mystical Marker Farms' Mystical Victress proved to be too much for her state-bred rivals as she confidently reported home with a two-length triumph over nine other Illinois distaffers in Saturday’s $15,000 Fox Valley Memory Stake at Balmoral Park. The final time was an effortless 1:54.

Hustled away from post position eight by driver Lewayne Miller, the six-year-old daughter of Sportsmaster was parked through an opening quarter in :28.3.

Continuing her march to the top, Mystical Victress grabbed command as the field moved into a stiff headwind on the backstretch. In complete control of the proceedings, Mystical Victress proceeded to rattle off very comfortable middle splits of :57.4 and 1:27 while keeping a first over Dune In Red (Todd Warren) at bay.

Mystical Victress put away the challenge of her main rival through the lane, easily drawing clear through the final sixteenth of a mile to notch her 49th career victory. Fox Valley Absolut (Robert Smolin) rallied up the passing lane to finish second while Dune In Red held on for third.

The win was 11th of the year for Mystical Victress, who is now in the barn of conditioner Jill Arnold. The 3-5 choice of the wagering public returned $3.40, $2.40 and $2.10 while upping her career bankroll to a whopping $846,713.
